Best Apps for Same-Day Grocery Delivery

Looking for (nearly) instant grocery deliveries? There are loads of great apps that offer same-day delivery, with some aiming to deliver your food in minutes.

If you need your groceries ASAP but you’re not able to head out to the shops, try same-day delivery services. They’re very convenient and have some surprising benefits.

Some of the apps we’ve listed below are great for eco-friendly products. For example, it’s pretty much impossible to find cow’s milk without plastic packaging in the supermarket. But, it’s possible to buy milk in glass bottles from same-day grocery apps.

Plus, the groceries are often delivered in electric vehicles. Of course, the best way to keep you down is to walk or cycle to a local food store, but this isn’t always possible. When this is the case, same-day food apps can be the next best thing.

7 best same-day food delivery services

These are the top grocery apps for same-day deliveries:

1. Getir

  • Best for Eco-friendly brands and promo deals.
  • Delivers to: London, Birmingham, Cardiff, Manchester, Brighton, Bristol, Southampton, Cambridge, Leicester, Liverpool, Sheffield, Portsmouth, Nottingham, Bradford, and Leeds.
  • Delivery costs: Usually, £1.99 for orders under £20. In some parts of London, delivery costs £2.49 for orders under £25. All orders over £25 have free delivery. The first three orders typically have free delivery.

On Getir, there’s usually a handful of promo deals available at any one time. These can include offers to get money off or free items for orders over a certain amount.

2. Gorillas

  • Best for Plastic-free grocery bags and a great sign-up offer.
  • Delivers to: London, Manchester, Nottingham, Reading, and Southampton.
  • Delivery costs: £1.80. Orders below £10 in Reading, Southampton, and some parts of London have a surcharge of £2.

Gorillas are another really speedy grocery delivery app. If you spend over £25, you can get £10 off your first Gorillas order (click the link for details).

They deliver groceries in recyclable brown paper bags and often have a great selection of choices.

3. Beelivery

  • Best for: £5 off your order when you verify as a student.
  • Delivers to: Most of the UK.
  • Delivery costs: £3.50, and there’s a service fee of £0.99. Orders need to cost £12 or more. If your order costs £12 – £25, they’ll add a small order fee of £1. And for orders between 11 pm and 6 am, there’s a night-time fee of £3.

If you find that none of the above apps will deliver to your home, don’t worry. You might have more luck with Beelivery.

4. Zapp
